Youth Advisory Panel

What is the Youth Advisory Panel
The Youth Advisory Panel, or YAP, is a group of young people from across the county who advise us on providing and developing our support services for young people. The YAP are a core element of Jigsaw Galway and are fundamental to everything we do.

Their role is to represent their own views, as young people in Galway; to represent Jigsaw within their community and to make joint decisions with us on the running of Jigsaw’s services and we would love to hear from young people from all communities across Galway City and County.

Current member of our YAP Deirdre Fahy said about the YAP that, “Being part of the YAP has improved my self belief, built my confidence and makes me better at expressing my own opinions.”
